Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club, located just north of Tampa in Dade City, Fla. is home to two of Florida’s finest golf courses. The famous South Course was built on 220 acres and designed by US Open Champion Tom Lehman along with renowned course architect, Kurt Sandness. Their strategy was simple, take full advantage of the uniquely hilly terrain and create a golf course that is a professional tour quality course in every sense. The North Course built on 263 acres, is a perfect compliment to the South Course. A little more contemporary in style, the North Course offers abundant elevation changes that provide incredible views of the scenic terrain.
